enforcement and the public health community isn't unique now just to drug policy. we also see that partnership in the debate about gun violence. that is why when president obama announced 23 executive actions to reduce gun violence in america, he also included actions to address the role that mental health plays in reducing this challenge. and there are common sense steps supported not only by law enforcement, but there are common sense steps that he has proposed that are also supported by the public health community. let me close by telling you further what drug policy reform looks like from my perspective. it's about helping women with substance use disorders get access to prenatal care so that their children get a healthy start in life. it's about showing teenagers that a healthy plan to adulthood so that they can succeed as productive members of society with the skills they need to compete in a 2 19th century -- 21st century workplace are given to them. and it's about giving that person who struggled with addiction an opportunity to go to treatment and receive support in their recovery. an
